It’s always nice time to chat about this one, isn’t it?
The good news is that Daniel Espinosa‘s upcoming thriller Safe House is getting bigger every day.
So, let’s add another name on this project’s interesting cast list that already includes Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Nora Arnezeder and Tim McGraw.
Everybody say “hi” to Ruben Blades, best known from 2003 title Once Upon a Time in Mexico.
Safe House is “set in South America, and follows a young U.S. intelligence agent who must go on the run with a newly arrived prisoner after his titular safe house comes under attack – think of a mix between Collateral and Three Days of the Condor.”
Ryan Reynolds is set to star as the frontrunner CIA agent Matt Weston opposite Denzel Washington as criminal Tobin Frost.
Washington will be playing a dangerous prisoner who has to be transported to a second safe house after the first secret location is attacked and all of the CIA agents protecting him are killed off, except one – Matt Weston (Reynolds).
McGraw will play “a CIA agent who is the mentor to Reynolds’ character. He may not be all he appears to be.
Arnezeder will play Ryan Reynolds’ love interest and according to the latest reports, Blades, by the way – a recording artist and former minister of tourism of Panama, will play the role of Carlos Villar, a counterfeiter.
Safe House is scheduled for release on February 10, 2012.
